Sydor to the Tampa Bay Penguins

sorry if this was already reported

http://www.theinsideronpittsburghsports.com/

Quote:
I'm hearing Barry Melrose wants to bring in a veteran defenseman to work with his young blue line and sees Sydor as a good fit. The Lightning and Penguins have had preliminary talks and while the Lightning are still exploring other options, some former Penguins are in background trying to get Sydor in a Lightning uniform. The issue at hand right now is the Lightning want either Rob Scuderi or a 3rd round pick for Sydor. If Shero is going to include Scuderi he wants something back in return other than a late round pick.
on a related topic the lighting are looking into a new jersey for next season, heres the prototype

The Tampa Bay Penguins would have a pretty awesome team.

Hmm. Is there even a spot for him?

Carle, Kuba, Ranger, O'Brien, Picard, Lundin, Hutchinson, Niskala; who's going to the AHL...Lundin? I think Niskala and Hutchinson are on 1-way deals. Plus weren't Smaby or Mihalik going to get a good look this season?

The Tampa Bay Penguins

Malone - Crosby - St. Louis
Sykora - Malkin - Prospal
Jokinen - Levacalier - Satan
Fedotenko - Stamkos - Vrbata

Whitney - Gonchar
Carle - Orpik
Ranger - Kuba

Fleury
Kolzig
Smith



Not too bad, but they need to improve their center depth first.

No kidding, their centres sure are lacking in skill.

Sydor was a very solid D-man for TBLs Cup win, he was a great shut down style d-man who even contributed a bit.

Getting a little long in the tooth now, but he can still perform to NHL standards (and especially help the Lightning)

This makes sense because Melrose had Sydor back in LA and went to the Cup Finals with him. Obviously, Sydor is a grizzled veteran now, not the youngster that Melrose remembers, but Barry knows his character. Also, I suppose that it would be nice to travel with someone that he has a history with and can relate with.

Yes, But it's looking like someone on the blueline is going to have to go through waivers before the start of the season.

Sadly, that isnt the Sydor the Pens got. He's lost quite a few steps since then. If he was that Sydor, there wouldnt be any talk of trading him.

Yeah I agree, but personally I would much rather lose Hutchinson/Niskala/Kuba than lose Lundin as they may be better short term, but long term I think Lundin could be better in the future.

They'd probably be worst in the league on the PK.

Tampa just sent "old and slow", aka Lukowich to San Jose. Now they want to add "old and slow" aka Sydor? Please, not again.

I can't remember the last time an NHL team has such turnover in players between seasons. Weird...

Sydor is worth nothing more than a $3 dollar winning lottery ticket...He is a beating to watch in the defensive zone.

Who is that blogger? Just some guy or someone legit? BTW, your picture, which I'm sure is both hilarious and original, didn't load.

Honestly, that was the last time he played well. He was horrible his last year in Tampa & he's been on 3 teams since the lockout. Great locker room guy, but waaaaaay past his prime & massively overpaid to boot. I still LOL about Dallas fans acting like they'd "won" giving us a 4th for the guy.

Gets crapped on over at the Pens board a fair bit, but also broke some stuff like the Naslund signing IIRC.

A 4th round pick is about right for him so i really don't see the problem...And i never lol'd.....


What i did lol about is the fact that you singed Recchi to a 1yr deal worth 2 million and they waived him. Then he was picked up by atlanta and showed he still has some left. In Atlanta he has 12 goals and 28 assists. I think that if you had him the chances of you beating Detroit could of been better.
